We as American citizens have a duty to be active civic and politically because the government makes decision based of what we want and is better. Also, if the nation wants to live in harmony and peace, want to be heard, and want freedom and democracy they must participate in civic and political, like is voting. Before, women don’t have that right and some women gave her life to make that happen, just as Mary Livermore.
Mary Livermore was born on December 19th, 1820, in Boston and died on May 23th, 1905, in Melrose. She was an American suffragist and social reformer; also, she served as president of Woman Suffrage Association. Before that happen, when the cholera took over Chicago she became an active volunteer, and also when the American Civil War broke out no long she recruits by the U.S. Sanitary Commission. Thanks to her work with the Sanitary Commission led Livermore to become an active suffragist and social reformer, developing an ardent belief that extending the right to vote to women was necessary to achieving social reforms such as temperance (“Mary Ashton Rice Livermore."). Then, she dedicates the rest of her life activism to the woman suffrage movement, and providing a grain of sand to the right of woman.
Thanks to her, women today have voice and vote in different areas. That’s why I think that she deserves as same to all the women who work for that, one day in our calendar in action of gratitude. Nowadays, the women in the whole country can vote for everything, making the dream of her in a reality and that dedicating her life to the women suffrage wasn’t a waste at…...

Mary Rowlandson

...The Struggle: Mary Rowlandson’s Story of Survival “All was gone, my husband gone..., my children gone, my relations and friends gone, our house and home, and all our comforts within door and without, all was gone except my life and I knew not but the next moment might go too.”(Edmund, 19) These were the words of Mary Rowlandson, a woman taken into captivity after Native Americans raided her colony, tortured and murdered the people of the land, and took Mary and a few others and turned them into slaves. Mary’s life was spared because she possessed the skill of sewing, and often sewed and knitted the Indians clothing. During her captivity she analyzed the way the Native Americans socialized and lived their everyday lives. The two worlds were polar opposites, and the way Native American women were treated was much different to the beliefs of Puritan ideology. Indian women even led army groups as large as 300 people; they were considered very strong. The women considered Mary to be weak, and treated her as such. In the Puritan world woman’s power was non-existent, and believes the women were around to serve the man, and their opinions and thoughts were not valued. “It was a solemn sight to see so many Christians lying in their blood, some here and some there, like a company of sheep torn by wolves. All of them striped naked by a company of hell-hounds, roaring, singing, ranting, and insulting, as if they would have torn our hearts out.”(Rowlandson, 9-10) While many of her......

Mary Rowlandson

...Mary Rowlandson’s story, The Sovereignty and Goodness of God, discusses her experiences when a group of Natives capture her and her family from their village in the New World. Her story is based on her beliefs and reasoning of why she thinks she went through the events she endured. Mary believed that the reasoning of this event was to test her trust and faith in God and her overall strength. Mary endured so much pain and suffering, but she never let her unfortunate experiences oversee the grace of God. It was tough to see the will of God while surrounded by what she saw as savages, but she kept her faith. She recognized God was her guidance and did not rely on any other being but Him. Mary shared the word of God with her union by using scripture; not only to tell others His word, but also to prove that she was walking with God. She believed that every time she quoted the Bible, not only was she becoming closer to God, but she was also making herself feel better. When Mary was put into a dangerous position, she showed a belief that God is an amazing being that rewards Christians as a result of their devotion to Him. She also showed that commitment and faithfulness to God was part of the Puritans everyday lifestyle. She may have lost a daughter and other family members, but she never gave up on her faith in God; instead she used her tragedies to spread the word of God and to please Him. Her religious beliefs assisted her throughout her captivity and she......

Mary Dyer

...very outspoken one may I add. She was also a supporter of Anne Hutchinson, a very prominent woman in America back then. She was hung for defying a Puritan law which banned Quakers from the colonies. This woman’s name was Mary Dyer.  Not much is known of Mary Barrett Dyer’s early life. On October 27th, 1663 the first known history of Mary Dyer was noted. She married William Dyer, a very successful merchant, in London. William and Mary added on to the family by giving birth to six children. In 1635 they all migrated to the Massachusetts Bay colony where they had been accepted as members of the Church of Boston. They both realized they found themselves in a place full of controversy involving antinomianism which is holding under the Gospel that moral law is not useful for salvation because faith alone can only accomplish this. Another Quaker woman in Boston, Anne Hutchinson held regular religious meetings at her house where William and Mary often attended. In 1652 Mary and her husband traveled to England where they remained for five long years. This was when she became a Quaker. She had then returned to Boston to spread the message of the Quakers but was sadly imprisoned. Luckily her husband, since he had not adopted the Quakers customs was able to set her free.  Mary dyer was a woman who fought for what she believed in. She was executed almost multiple times. She had two companions when she returned to Massachusetts after being expelled. They were William Robinson and......

Mary Cassatt

...Art History Mary Cassatt: The Impressionist Painter Cassatt was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later presented among the Impressionists. She often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.

She was Queen for nine days, but was deposed and Mary carried on as legitimate successor. Faction Mary was determined to fill the council with loyal people, but she couldn’t prevent all rivalries! = Gardiner vs. Paget. The rivalry emerged over Mary’s marriage issue. Gardiner proposed that Mary should marry Courtnay, and Paget argued she should marry Phillip of Spain Some were also sceptical of some of her policies, such as the effectiveness of the burning of protestants. However, despite some disagreements with her policies, she managed to obtain agreement for 3 major steps: the full return to Rome in religion, her marriage to the heir of the Spanish throne and the declaration of war on France Faction was much less of a problem in Mary’s reign than her predecessors, with a greater sense of continuity and solidarity among most councillors.

Mary Jemison

...Upon reading the fascinating adventures of Mary Jemison, the American frontierswoman who was captured by Shawnee Indians and raised by the Seneca tribe, I was surprised to read the following excerpt: “…the attempts…made to civilize and Christianize them [the Indians] by the white people has constantly made them worse and worse; increased their vices, and robbed them of many of their virtues.” This statement should be understood in the proper context. When the first frontiersmen arrived, they also brought with them commerce, horses, guns, trade, whiskey, sewing, farming, and architecture. Many of the modernizations that were introduced were good; others were bad. But from the variety of things introduced into the Indians’ lives, it would be disingenuous to blame the vices of the Seneca on Christianity—a religion which teaches men “to love God with thy whole mind, body and soul, and love thy neighbor as thyself.” One should not forget that the neighboring Shawnee murdered Mary Jemison’s innocent family in cold blood, scalping her mother, father and siblings. Only she and another little boy were spared. Sin was not introduced by the white man. In reading further, Mary Jemison says that the Seneca believed that “the Christian religion is better calculated for the good of white people; and wonder that those who have embraced it, do not attend more strictly to its precepts.” This statement sheds greater light on her former words. It is evident that the Seneca Indians......

...Qendresa Krasniqi Essay Mary Wollstonecraft A Vindication of the Rights of Woman Epoka University 19 May 2014 Introduction: Mary Wollstonecraft on the book Vindication of the Rights of Women writes for or better say demands better education and right for women by arguing on some others author writings. This topic is very important especially for women, because in her book we can see how women were prejudiced and discriminated at a specific time frame chosen by the author. She calls out to all women to be interested in education, and she calls men not to feel superior and believe women to be inferior because according to her the only reason women were prejudiced was that men saw women as weak and fragile compared to them. Most importantly, she argues that woman should not have only a domestic education and by saying that upon receiving an education, women will become more powerful. Personally, I agree on all her ideas, because i believe in women equality, especially when it comes to education, and women must be seen in the same manner as men in the society. This paper will show Wollstonecraft’s main ideas that she used in her famous book dedicated to women rights. A short biography of Mary Wollstonecraft: A history making woman, “mother of feminism” Mary Wollstonecraft was born on April 27th 1759 in England, in a middle-class family with an alcoholic and abusive father, and was the second child out of seven.

Maries Historie

...1 Litterær artikel Maries historie __________________________________________ Hvad afgør, om man har fundet sin egen identitet? Kan man skifte identitet ud fra hændelser i sit liv, og vil det påvirke individets identitet resten af livet, eller kan man skifte igen? Det er nok ikke noget så mange almindelige mennesker går og bryder deres hjerner med i en travl hverdag – altså tænker over hvem de er, hvilken identitet de har, og hvordan og hvad der har været afgørende for, at man er er blevet til den person, man er, og hvad der gør, at man lever efter specielle normer og værdier. Måske prøver nogle at flygte fra den identitet, de har skabt, eller nogle ender måske i en kasse, hvor de egentlig ikke rigtigt hører hjemme, men de ved ikke, hvordan de flygter fra det… Ovenstående tankevækkende spørgsmål kan man bl.a. læse om i Christina Hesselholdts novelle: ”Maries historie,” som blev bragt i ”Ud og SE” i Januar 1994. Christina Helleholdts novelle ”Maries Historie” handler om en kvinde, der bærer på en stor sorg efter tabet af hendes veninde Marie mange år tilbage. ”Vi var begge fyldt ti et år, Vi var ikke født den samme dag, men det føltes sådan.” (s 1 l 76.) Novellen er fortalt i første person som en jeg-fortæller med indre synsvinkel ”Jeg var udrustet til at møde et menneske der græd mere end jeg selv.” (s. 1 l. 5) På den måde får man virkelig jeg personens indre tanker og følelser med, som er vigtige for netop denne novelle, der bygger meget på tanker og følelser.......

Luke 2:6 says, “And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.” Mary represented every human who needed deliverance.

Mary Slessor

...Mary Slessor was born in 1848 in Scotland. She was the second of seven children. She credited much of her good character to her upbringing from her deeply religious mother. Her father ran a shoe making business that did not go well, he became an alcoholic, which resulted hardship and poverty for the family. Mary started working to help provide for her family at a very young age, her wages became the primary source of the family income, and she worked up to ten hours a day to make ends meet for her family. She became a Christian at a young age. She enjoyed going to church; it was a getaway from her unhappy life at home. Her older brother, who was planning to go as a missionary, died. Mary decided to go in his place. She embarked on her missionary journey to Calabar in 1875 where her battle for Christianity began. She fell sick from malaria several times and eventually passed away in 1915, nearly forty years after coming to Africa, at the age of 66. Mary Slessor has become an inspiration to all who hear her story. She was not only a pioneer missionary, but also an activist for women in general. Witchcraft and Superstition were prevalent in Calabar when she arrived there because traditional society had been torn apart by the slave trade. Human sacrifice routinely followed the death of a village chief. The custom that broke her heart most was 'twin-murder’. The tribes thought that twins were a result of a curse caused by an evil spirit that fathered one of the children. Both......
